St. Joseph Catholic Parish School

Saint Joseph Catholic Parish School offers a co-educational, Christian education for students in grades PK-8th. Originally founded in 1949, SJS is the oldest private school in Athens, Georgia.

Our school recently applied for and was granted candidacy for the International Baccalaureate Program (IB), a rigorous educational framework that has a strong track record of yielding highly-motivated children who want to go beyond the typical curriculum offered in most schools. All of our students are currently engaged in the IB’s Primary Year Program or the Middle Year Program and are being equipped with the tools they will need to become successful adults in their ever-changing, global world.

SJS is located off Epps Bridge Parkway near the Athens-Clarke/Oconee line. Our students come from 11 surrounding counties. A 46-acre campus houses our 65,000-squarefoot building and boasts a new, all-weather artificial turf sports field as well as a high school regulation gym that allows us to host volleyball and basketball games.

Saint Joseph offers academic excellence while challenging our students to reach their full potential. All students receive daily instruction in core curriculum classes as well as enrichment classes, which include: Art, Library, Music, Physical Education, Spanish, and Technology. Accredited by Advance-Ed, the parent corporation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), SJS is also a member of the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). SJS follows the Archdiocese of Atlanta Curriculum Standards/Objectives.

SJS brings the most advanced technology into the hands of our students. We use iPads, Chromebooks, Macbooks, Lenovo Yogas, and Microsoft Surfaces. We are a Google Applications for Education School, and all of our students use Google Apps.

Aside from academic rigor, SJS places a strong emphasis on service and character and is committed to nurturing the minds - and the hearts - of its students.
